I truly love this outfit! I just purchased both the sweater and jeans and had the jeans on when I tried the sweater. I knew as soon as I saw myself in the mirror I was going to wear them together for a chic boho look. Add a floppy hat and large fun tote and I’m done. Husband loved the outfit as well which is always a plus!


It feels really good to wear loose, wide-leg jeans and not skinnies. I won’t be getting rid of them but it’s nice to have options that are on-trend. I definitely needed a pair of wide-leg jeans that were floor length and not easily cuffed like my J Crew pairs. This is an outfit I would absolutely wear for Black Friday shopping. It’s comfortable and the tote will hold snacks and water.

It’s time for a Nap!

I bought the Selvedge Chambray Shirt right before the holidays, hoping it kept with the longer shirt trend J Crew has been promoting. Turns out it just covers my booty which is longer than my other denim and chambray shirts. I have worn it several times already and love it under the Abstract Fair Isle Sweater. I took my normal size 8 in this shirt and it fits TTS.

I have had the Cashmere Shawl-Collar Sweater since Holiday 2009. It looks great over ruffled blouses like Silk Frances Cami from a few years ago. The Pixie Pants in Tuxedo Stripe are last year’s version but you can still get this year’s version. Though they need it, I haven’t had the chance to get them hemmed. Every time I wear them I am wearing boots so I just fold them up. I did wash them in the machine and not dry clean them. I put them on delicate in cold water. (I have a front-load machine.) The leather stripe came out all wrinkled and crumpled and I thought I had ruined them. After they dried I pulled on that part to see what would happen and they went back to normal. Especially after I put them on. I do wear them quite a few times before washing and I don’t know how many times I’ll be able to get away with it before something happens to the leather. Hopefully, I’ll get my fill of them by then. 

The Anonymous Ism socks are from last year’s men’s collection but there are new offerings this year {here, here, here}. Mine have deer on them and since they are for men, they are a little bigger but much cozier too! I am finally wearing my Tortoise Crystal Pendant and paired it with an older J Crew necklace, maybe the Pearl & Box Chain. {Que Bella} I forgot how much I liked the necklace. I’ll have to be sure to wear it so it’s more noticeable next time.
I hope you are all staying warm this weekend! I am hoping to make my niece’s basketball tournament tomorrow, with maybe a stop at the outlet. I haven’t been there in a while. Kate Spade and J Crew are calling to me.
Have a Great Day!

Can you tell I love the Harvest Moon Poncho from Anthropologie? This Ivory color goes with everything. I wore this outfit a week ago to try to finish all my Christmas shopping and received so many compliments on both the Poncho and the Hebrides Geo Pendant Necklace. The Tartan Shirt look great underneath it though now I wish that it was offered in the longer length this season so it would have extended past the sweater. Why does J Crew not bring this back as a staple each year? Or at least a Factory staple?
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and received everything they wanted! I hosted Christmas Day this year and there were presents galore for my niece and nephews. It was crazy but we all enjoyed a delicious Italian lunch of Lasagna, Spaghetti and Meatballs, Baked Tomatoes, Caesar Salad and lots and lots of desserts, most of which my mom made. Cookies galore!
I’m working today so I hope everyone enjoys the after-Christmas sales! MamaBella is going out today to check out Dillard’s and Talbots.
Have a Great Day!

Good evening all! I have been trying to post this all day but have been so very busy. But I wanted to get this outfit out there since I loved wearing it. It was so comfortable and Christmas-y without over-doing it. The Perfect Shirt in Tartan is one of my all-time favorite J Crew shirts. Alone or layered with a sweater it just looks good. It even goes with Leopard!

I bought this version of the Pilcro Stet Slim Ankle Jeans on sale over the Summer and they are awesome. These and my two Tory Burch pair are in heavy rotation right now. I like the darker wash on both for Winter. I will be getting the Stardust color of these as soon as I can, since they fit so amazingly well. 
 The Quinn Ankle Booties are still my favorites to wear out of all the new ones I’ve purchased this season. Though I have a pair of black ankle booties, I am so tempted to get the Quinn’s in Black Suede. 

My department had a little Christmas lunch and Secret Santa gifting on Tuesday. I though this outfit was perfect with the little touch of Christmas plaid to have a fun lunch break with the co-workers.

I am off to write my list of what I’m missing and who I’m missing that I need to buy for. I have wrapped quite a bit.

I love to wrap presents and have gotten into buying pretty ribbon for the bows. I’m not fancy about it or anything. I just put it around the gift and tie a bow. I like to sit there with a glass of wine and wrap the gifts. I like J Crew’s black boxes because you can be creative with the different colors and textures of ribbon to put on the box. The one in the bottom pic has a red plaid felt ribbon around it. The gold ball wrapped box in front of it has this glitter ribbon. After I was done with just that ribbon, glitter was everywhere so I might have to try and find some less messy ribbon.

Oh, if only life was as simple as avoiding glitter. Haha! Have a Great Evening!

The Cashmere Lizzie Tunic was one of the items I bought during the Tory Burch promo over the Thanksgiving week. It’s one I have been wanting to buy for a while and was able to find it on sale and with a promo. It’s so very soft in 100% Cashmere. The description states this is long-sleeved but I found it to be bracelet-sleeved. The v-neck isn’t so low that you are exposed. I don’t feel a cami underneath is needed. The Navy and Ivory stripes are a beautiful and striking combination and the all navy neckline helps make a nice contrast against them.

I ordered a Medium which is my normal size. I couldn’t have asked for a better fit. I also bought this in Black for MamaBella. I think the Pearl Twisted Hammock Necklace will be beautiful against the all Black Cashmere Tunic.

I very happy with my first Tory Burch Cashmere purchase. Tomorrow, I’ll be sharing a great dress I bought during the promo as well. 
Have a Great Afternoon!
